For the first time since I moved into my School House Studio, I found mouse dropping on my altar and desk. I thought about putting a trap out, but since I don’t keep any food in my studio, I figured the visitor wouldn’t stay long.
Then Bud came into my studio and… well… you can see how interested he was in the shelf with the black fabric on it. Since he’s never done this before I had a good idea what got his attention.
Now the dilemma.
I found two tiny naked mice on the shelf where Bud was poking around. Although I’m willing to set a mousetrap that would quickly kill an intruding mouse, I don’t have it in me to kill those two baby mice.
So I shredded a few tissues, made a little nest in a box and put the baby mice in it, and back on the shelf. Then I surrounded the shelf with boxes of fabric to keep Bud away.
I’m hoping their mother moves them at least to a nest inside the wall or under the floor. I don’t know if they’ll even survive. A part of me doesn’t want them to because I don’t want mice living in my studio.
But for now, I’ll just leave things as they are and see what happens next.
